Halle Berry Gushes Over New Son Maceo
Only five short months after giving birth to her second child Maceo, Halle Berry is looking sexy as ever.
How did she do it? Well, she gives all the credit for getting her slim figure back to breastfeeding. “Every mother should breastfeed,” she said of her post-pregnancy weight loss. “It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight, and then you have to eat right.”
Berry already has one child, a daughter Nahla, 5, from her previous marriage. While she admits that she didn’t think she would want another child at this stage in life, she says that she feels very blessed to have a baby boy. ” I just feel great because I have another baby,” Berry said. “I never thought that at my stage in life another baby — and a baby boy — was coming to me, so yeah, I’m blessed.”
Most five-year-olds would be jealous of a new baby coming in and taking the spotlight off of them, but not Nahla. Berry reveals that Nahla has fallen right into the big sister role, and is loving every second of it. “She’s very serious about her big sister role,” Berry said. “It’s like one of her doll babies came alive. She gets to take care of him, feed him, change his diapers, play with him, dress him up in different clothes like five times a day because she can, so she loves it.”
Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez welcomed baby Maceo in October 2013 at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Since then, the couple has been focusing on their role as parents, but are still working on new films and television shows. Berry’s most recent film Frankie and Alice is set to debut in theaters on April 4, and Martinez recently landed a new role on ABC’s Revenge.
